Raju Shanbhag

All is not going well for online seller eBay (News - Alert). The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) has filed eight new lawsuits against eBay-based software sellers, alleging that they are selling counterfeit products. This takes the total number of lawsuits filed against the eBay sellers by SIIA to 17 as the organization has already filed 9 cases before.

In fact SIIA has filed more than 25 cases against eBay sellers in the last two years. The company also claims to have reached several settlements in the process. According to SIIA, the organization has approached eBay and offered ideas to stop the sale of counterfeit software programs. But the organization claims that eBay rejected all these ideas.
